Since 2000, the Campaign for Legal Services has brought together New Hampshire’s business, legal and philanthropic communities to support the Legal Advice & Referral Center and New Hampshire Legal Assistance.
Guided by the organizations’ Overlapping Boards of Directors and the Campaign Leadership Council, the Campaign promotes awareness of civil legal aid’s impact on New Hampshire’s society and economy. Through corporate sponsorship of events and individual solicitations of support, the Campaign generates private funding so LARC and NHLA advocates can spend their time protecting the rights of the state’s most vulnerable residents.
These two organizations provide civil, noncriminal legal aid for people who have no where else to turn when navigating the legal system. Civil legal aid makes a difference in the lives of real people in real emergencies, such as:
- the single mother, who needs to receive child support in order to feed her children
- the veteran, who will lose his home if he doesn’t receive his disability check
- the child with learning differences, who deserves access to an education.
Originally allocated as part of the War on Poverty, public funding for civil legal aid is at an all-time low, making private efforts like the Campaign more important than ever.
Donations to the Campaign are tax-deductible and create tangible benefits for low-income families and New Hampshire’s elderly residents. Join us today, and help fulfill the promise of justice for all.
